Finally switched the system from Flex5K (as main) to Flex6K(as main) and the 5K as backup.
(I had been holding off till I was comfortable with CWX)
Quickly figured out the split operation. As it was the split stations were working easy splits.
One fellow up 1, the other up 5. Learned how to drag my xmit on top of last worked.
That was pretty intuitive. Plus if he's doing a pattern, watching the B slice tells you where he will listen next)
Got a GREAT audio report from the SSB station, and for the cw stations, I busted those pile quick.
Being able to see the previous worked station in the B Slice makes that a no-brainer.
Used CWX, worked like a charm. (I can use the paddles, but the arthritis sometimes makes it a tad choppy)
All in all, a pretty simple learning curve.

I don't like the RF Power slider returning to minimum upon band changes...That got me twice.
Can't find a setting to prevent that.

Are you using DDUtil?  If so, it may be you haven't updated the power levels by band...
